It goes without saying that we always look forward to releasing the work of Restive, whose work has always been fascinatingly original in approach and execution. His emergence from the (likely non-existent) South African experimental glitch-ambient scene is a marvel in itself, considering the high cost and strong regulation of internet service in SA. Restive's cubistic compositions have continued to push through these limitations: as such what else could we at TTHQ do but grab our end of the rope and pull!
"World of Mysterious Intent..." is an interesting album to say the least, as it treats the compositions much more like they were visual art, or more specifically, like cubist sculpture. As you listen you can hear and almost see geometric pieces of sound in the air and the stereo field.
Each track is an 'intent' based around a theme and various sources of sonic plunder. The whole album is a sort of puzzle where the greatest pleasure will come from taking the pieces apart.
